The On-Line Memorial and Museum of Prisoners of War provides a permanent commemoration of prisoners of war, and a focal point for research, activities and events.
Today 19th December 2023 we have published our first newsletter. Read it now!
The Online Memorial and Museum of Prisoners of War is entirely run by volunteers who offer their time and financial support to continue our work and to improve the tools and services that we offer to the public completely free of charge.
There is much to do. If you have benefitted from our work or would simply like to help us to honour prisoners of war, please consider supporting us.
Please consider supporting us in our work and helping us continue to improve our tools and records.
Get involved with the considerable work needed to process and clean newly released data from the National Archives and other sources.
Do you have information about a POW? Submit your details to us to include in the database.
Although you can search by surname, first name, POW number or any other field including any descriptive text included in the records the quickest way to a POW’s record is always to search by Service number,
We now have over 80,000 POWs recorded on this site. Until we can afford more sophisticated hosting, running queries on the prisoner database (particularly large ones such as all POWs or British Army) may require some patience.
Some men spent extended periods working or being treated in a variety of medical facilities.
